A small bite of lunch

When I started this here blog, I publicly angsted about the worth of writing on subjects as mundane as my daily obsessions. Does anybody care what I had for lunch? Not likely. But, then, why would anyone give a crap about anything else I might have to say?

On that note, here's today's lunch menu. Typical it ain't. Put to task our recent visit to Valpolicella it does. Flame-Haired Angel and I had a few folks over. This is what hit the table. All the food was home made, but can you guess which of us made which bits?

* * *

Prosecco (as an aperitif)

Rosemary and Pepper Grissini

Grilled Zucchini, Eggplant and Red Capsicum with Anchovies (accompanied by Monte Faustino Pelara, 2004)

Butter and Sage Pappardelle on a bed of baby spinach (Monte Faustino Amarone Classico, 2000)

Spiced venison pies with parmesan/pepper polenta and a garnish of wilted garlic spinach (Il Bertarole Amarone, 2000)

Italian cheese plate with almonds and dried figs (Serego Alighieri "Vaio Armaron" Amarone, 1999)
